Error description

  • Customer is having Excel 2010 .xlsx format Excel sheet which
    they open in TM1 10.1 Perspective. They add an 'Action button'
    and apply background formatting color to it. Before they save
    the excel sheet the 'Action button' does contain the formatted
    color.??Now they save the Excel sheet and open the same in TM1
    Web. It is noticed that the formatted background color is lost.
    The background color of the 'Action button' is reverted back to
    it's default which is grey color.??Customer wants the formatted
    background color to also show in TM1 Web for the same sheet.??On
    doing a search in CQ I found a couple of defect matching to this
    one:-??a) Defect: COGCQ00791645 - Several Action Button
    properties are not exported during save??b) Defect:
    COGCQ00663863 - Formatting disappears from Action Buttons when
    saved in .xlsx format??As the above defects were for 9.5.2 and
    the customer is on TM1 10.1 hence raised a new defect.
